GET READY FOR THE GREATEST TRIP OF YOUR LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Forget about Cabo, or visiting your dog for spring break (although dogs are cool). Instead, join us for a magical trip to the island of Kauai that is filled with magical magic galore! We will be backpacking along the Na Pali coast (One of the most gorgeous places on this planet), exploring the untouched wilderness on the island of Kauai, and hopefully stopping by Waimea Canyon (The GRAND CANYON OF THE PACIFIC). These plans are weather permitting, so get ready to be as a flexible as an Olympic gymnast.
-Cost of the trip includes the round trip flight
-We’ll spend most of the week backpacking on the Kalalau trail, with Kalalau beach being our final destination on the trail
-After Kalalau, we’ll head to Waimea Canyon for a the last day and spend our last night here as well
-We’ll be flying back Saturday, so hopefully everyone will have a day to recuperate before classes start again on Monday
-The weather is very temperamental
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS GOOGLE KALALAU TRAIL
-Deadline for payment: Monday the 29th
*Because the trip is very strenuous, please apply first!!!
